Day 2 of our Heidelberg & District Pipes and Drums workshop at the youth hostel in Hermeskeil. After a good night’s sleep and a nice breakfast, everybody was heading off to the piping and drumming classes, working on the tunes for this year’s competitions in grade 4 and grade 3. Hard work though, but very satisfying, the instructors are just great guys, and everybody is benefitting from their knowledge and experience. Later on this afternoon, and once we had tuned our pipes, the whole band got together for a one hour rehearsal, the sound was quite nice, and the drums sounded fantastic! Time now to relax … supper is almost served! Get back to you soon!
